well, I think you just have to look at the capabilities of IMAP5 to see
that the next generations of phone/tablet will have 3D support, both for
display and webcam (I think IMAP5 supports 2 webcam ports). So IMHO the big
manufacturers are now focusing on including 3D instead of designing new

About the choice of keyboard, from what I read on this thread I think that
one of the main issue is the feedback. Touch keyboard give you a feedback
via the feeling of the fingertips, so you don't need to focus your
attention to it. Maybe using an audible 'clic' would be an alternative for
touch screen keypads? or using an electric discharge to trigger the user's
nerves :) (though this may lower the battery life...)
